Today I have decided to join the Financial Samurai‘s Yakezie Challenge. The goal of the Yakezie Challenge is to use networking and lots of promotion to raise the Alexa ranking of participating personal finance blogs to under 200,000. Of course, more popular sites that have a ranking already under the goal benefit too as their ranking increases as well.
Currently, our ranking is 795,000 for the past 3 months but a stronger 404,000 for the past 1 month. Of course, this is still way below the goal, but we have a few months to reach and hopefully surpass it.
Regardless of who you are and what you do, a reachable goal is always something to have. It keeps you motivated and provides lots of gratification once reached. The Yakezie was an excellent idea to bring unique posts and content to the PF blog pool.
What This Means for Our Readers
There are many great finance blogs that you might not have heard of. We will be promoting great articles from other Yakezie members in order to introduce everyone to the great PF community. You will be surprised how many great writers are not fully appreciated!
One of the direct changes you will see is a weekly roundup of my favorite articles from Yakezie writers, either about general personal finance or a chosen topic.
